the mountains of california. that is the area of low pressure that is slowly going to trek eastward and then eventually bring snow to the area in oklahoma and arkansas and even winster storm watches posted across southeastern missouri up into southern illinois and into indiana as well. here you see this winter storm warning right through oklahoma city. so it is going to get pretty nasty for traveling in that area where we could end up with, again, about six or seven inches of snow in this pink shade here. again, most areas in the east will be seeing a good amount of sunshine for christmas day, however, tonight into tomorrow morning a weak little disturbance will move through and bring just enough snow that you could see some of the white stuff on the ground in the northeast making for kind of a white christmas, i guess. a little bit goes a long way though when we're talking about the holidays. veronica? >> yeah, that's true. just a little. thanks, dylan. >>> coming up next, a syrian airstrike kills dozens in a bread line. a hero farewell for the late senator inouye. >>> plus, what's
